The home teams served up victories Thursday night as the Deep Run boys and Mills Godwin girls came away victorious in showdowns with their rivals, both in five-setters!
HCS Media Network was live at Mills Godwin to see Deep Run mount a great comeback, on the verge of being swept, taking a nail-biting Set 3, then Set 4, to set up the tiebreaker. That's when Ayanna Swan took over in the middle, producing kill after kill (she had 16 in all) as the Eagles won Set 5 15-7 to clinch the victory.
Nora Saxman had 43 assists and 2 digs while Mackenzie Brewer added 13 kills and 2 aces.
Emma Murphy had 19 digs and 5 aces for Deep Run in the loss, while Taylor Scipione had 9 kills, 3 blocks and 4 assists. Deep Run (6-3) hosts the rematch on October 14th.
